Jason Collins was a roommate of Wellesley's congressional representative.
NBA center Jason Collins announced Monday he is gay, making him the first active professional male athlete in a major American sport to reveal he is a homosexual. The former Boston Celtic wrote about his decision in a Sports Illustrated article that went online Monday, and will appear in the May 6 print edition of the magazine.

Basically: spring will resume. 3. Tough morning for those Boston Celtics fans out there, many of who live in Wellesley, home to Celtics general manager Danny Ainge and guard Ray Allen. Better luck next year. 4. But what a time to look forward to Wellesley High School baseball and softball! Both teams are off tonight, but they’ll play Braintree tomorrow afternoon. (Baseball is home, softball is away). 5. Wellesley Patch …
